Issue Of Personhood Foundational In Bioethical Debates

In numerous bioethical debates approached from a secular perspective, many seemingly noble principles such as autonomy, individual choice, dignity, the common good, and the preservation of limited resources are invoked to justify various positions. However, when these complex issues are approached from a Judeo-Christian perspective, many times the implications and morality of these decisions are altered profoundly.



Perhaps the most fundamental concern raised by a standpoint informed… Continue

Mr. Cruz Goes To Washington

From what I recall of my childhood, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s civil rights movement was not universally embraced in the black community. Some blacks were frightened by his actions and angry at the “crazy” colored man for stirring up trouble. “He is making things worse for Negros!” MLK became an American…

THE SCHEME BEHIND THE OBAMACARE FRAUD

Fraud can be so brazen it takes people’s breath away. But for a prosecutor tasked with proving a swindle — or what federal law describes as a “scheme to defraud” — the crucial thing is not so much the fraud. It is the scheme.

To be sure, it is the fraud — the individual false statements, sneaky omissions, and deceptive practices — that grabs our attention. As I’ve …

C'mon Folks, Let's Give it Up for Ted Cruz!

Dear Patriots. Sen Ted Cruz went to bat for us, putting it all on the line, to defund Obamacare. With 5 million thus far and the number expected to grow to 129 million Americans losing their health care plan, Cruz's effort was a remarkable display of courageous leadership.…

40 HOUSE REPUBLICANS BACK CONSTITUTIONAL CHALLENGE TO OBAMACARE

Forty House Republicans have filed a friend-of-the-court brief in a legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act. The suit is based on the Origination Clause of the Constitution, according to Breitbart.com.

The case — Sissel vs. United States Department of Health and Human Services — was filed in federal court in 2010 by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Iraq war veteran Matt Sissel, who owns a small business in Iowa. It is to be heard by a federal appeals court in early…

The Two O's Betrayal of White America.

Obama continues to weaken America

Obama has weakened our military by forcing the "retirement" of  4 four star generals.. It has been very apparent that he hates the military. He has trimmed their budget several times. Also he has not been able to find GIs eho would be willing to kill Americans. However he persists in trying to confiscate our guns.

The generals are now fighting back!!! They are raising hell with Congress. They also say that a "civil uprising is not

out of the question. According to our…

MAJORITY OF GROUP HEALTH PLANS WILL LOOSE GRANDFATHER STATUS BY THE END OF 2013

The Obama administration has repeatedly said that the health-insurance-plan cancellations receiving so much attention in the news in recent days will affect only the 5 percent of Americans who purchase insurance on the individual market. The Department of Justice, however, in a brief filed in federal court last month, conceded that the number may be much higher. According to the administration’s…

More cronyism from Obama

Instead of using an American company to write the sign up program for Obamacare, Obama hired a Canadian

company to write the program.That company is owned and 0perated by the husband of Michelle Obama's

college roomate. Do you smell cronyism??? This company had written a program for the Canadian government

and was "fired" by them wheh the program was not satisfactory.

The Obamacare signup program is a disaster!!! It has no safety factors and  the info you give is…

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

The fundamental issue in human ethical behavior is summarized by Jesus in what we have come to call "The Golden Rule." Jesus put it this way:

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 7:12 TNIV).

It asks us to test our treatment of others by putting ourselves in their place. Treat others the way you would want them to treat you in the same or similar circumstance.

Somebody took that principle and translated it into Ten Commandments of Human Relations. You may have seen this anonymous piece, for it circulates in a variety of settings. In case you have missed it, I am reproducing it here.

Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile at people. It takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call people by name. It is music to anyone’s ears to hear the sound of his or her name.

Be friendly and helpful.

Be cordial. Speak and act as if everything you do is genuinely a pleasure. If it isn’t, learn to make it so.

Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost anyone, if you try.

Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism.

Be considerate of the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy — yours, the other fellow’s, and the correct one.

Be alert to serve. What counts most in life is what you do for others.

Live with a good sense of humor, a generous dose of patience, and a dash of humility appropriate to being human.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued!

The great challenge in human experience is not work skills, but people skills. That is, research has shown that the majority of people who fail in their vocation do so because they cannot get along with people.

You might think through the meaning of these ten common-sense ideas for your own workplace and personal activity. But what about the larger setting for your daily life? These principles work everywhere you go, for they are about showing respect to the people you meet in all those places.

Made in God’s image, all of us have something to be valued, affirmed, and acknowledged by others. But let it begin with us to acknowledge it in them. As the cycle of giving and receiving enlarges, the human community comes alive.
